In a previous post, we discussed a view on 5G Architecture from the European 5G PPP Architecture Working Group, and now its worth considering recommendations for End-to-end 5G systems from the US perspective. The 5G Americas (formerly known as 4G Americas) whitepaper “5G Technology Evolution Recommendations” discusses a selected set of scenarios and technologies for 5G.
ARCFIRE’s D4.3 Design of experimental scenarios, selection of KPIs and metrics [pdf] is now available for download at the deliverables area. This deliverable details the preparatory work done in ARCFIRE WP4 before the actual experimentation can begin. It takes the converged network operator scenarios for a traditional network design and the RINA designs that were developed
ARCFIRE’s D2.2 Converged Service Provider Network Design Report [pdf] is now available for download at the deliverables area. This report is intended to serve multiple purposes and to address multiple constituencies at the same time. Working on this document, we as the ARCFIRE partners, have improved our understanding of RINA and how its theory, architecture, and available implementations
ARCFIRE representatives attended the 5th face-to-face meeting of the ETSI Next Generation Protocols (NGP) ISG, which has hosted by i2CAT in Barcelona. During the two-days meeting ARCFIRE lead the discussion on network architectures vs. network buildings, pointing to the benefits of a comprehensive network architecture that allows SDOs such as the IETF, 3GPP or IEEE to
Sue Rudd, from Strategy Analytics, has released a new report on seven key challenges that must be met by service providers in order to fully address the IoT Services, Fixed Mobile Convergence, Cloud, Network Slicing, 5G and 4K Mobile Video markets during the next decade. The report reviews these challenges and the specific requirements needed for
The RINA Workshop is an annually organised event, allowing researchers interested in the Recursive InterNetwork Architecture (RINA) to present their work and discuss advances relating to their research. This year, on the 12th of October 2016 the workshop, which is co-organised by the H2020 ICT project ARCFIRE and the FP7 ICT project PRISTINE , will
ARCFIRE’s D2.1: Converged Network Operational Environment Report [pdf] is now available for download at the deliverables area. Below you can find the executive summary. Executive Summary Although network convergence is a long desired goal, current service providers are still working to integrate different access technologies and different network services into a single, common infrastructure. Future-proof service
During the 3rd meeting of ETSI’s ISG NGP group, a RINA tutorial was presented by ARCFIRE representatives. The tutorial covered the basics of RINA (structure, DIF components, overview of data transfer and layer management), followed by a toy example of a RINA mobile network. The presentation triggered a lot of questions and a lively discussion
